Just a Quick Post

I’ll make this short and sweet…got a massive headache coming on. I finished with the purple yarn as you can tell from the above photo. I cast off when I got home from PT this afternoon. Then I promptly picked up stitches for the left side border and knitted the first twelve row pattern repeat.

I took this photo with my phone and the other one with my camera. The first photo is more true to color than this one, but this will do. My neck and shoulders need some stretching exercises, not much, and the heating pad wrapped around me to loosen up tight muscles. I’ll work on this a little more tomorrow. I’ve done enough for today. It’s nice to make progress and reach a good stopping point. Time to rest and relax before a hot shower and a comfortable bed.

Have a blessed Thursday night, ya’ll.

I am a Native Texan, Wife, Mother, Grandmother, Great-Grandmother, Catholic Convert residing in rural North East Texas since 1975 when I married my husband and this small town girl became a country girl. I was taught to knit at the age of ten and discovered the writings of Elizabeth Zimmerman shortly after I married. I learned to ‘unvent’ things as I went along, to create my own patterns and generally have a blast with yarn and needles. In the mid 1980’s I explored the idea of spinning my own yarn and eventually got interested in weaving on a floor loom. I have three spinning wheels and a 24″ four-shaft Herald floor loom that I purchased from a friend in the 1990’s. I also enjoy sewing, tatting and making rosaries. I have a work room that contains my fiber, yarn, floor loom, sewing machines, serger and rosary making supplies. I have a spinning corner in a bedroom next to my work room, both with north windows looking toward the creek.
